  3. Hi,
    Its the problem of MBR (Master Boot Record) i think.

    Execute Following commands into your grub prompt :-
    grub> root (hd0,0)
    grub> setup (hd0)
    grub> quit

    then reboot your system may you go threw.and still this doesnt work for you than just boot from live CD/DVD and just send me output of /boot/grub/grub.conf and fdisk -l command.

  4. When I done installing ,then it\’s automatically reboot it’s self like you show in step 28 but after rebooting I got the message like this
    GNU GRUB version 0.97 (636K lower / 2094974k upper memory )
    [ Minimal BASH- like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB List possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible completions of device? filename.]
    Please help me how to do this is my first time to install fedora 10 Linux , I will be waiting for your answer

  5. Thanks Randy,

    If you dont want GUI then you go to custom configuration and Just Uncheck All the options from Desktop Environment options.
    For Minimum Installation You can uncheck Office/Productivity (if you dont need office),Sound/Video,Games from Applications.

    I think by unchecking this all option which i mentioned you will be able to install very minimum Fedora10 without GUI mode

    Hope it helps to you 🙂

  6. Thanks, a very clear explanation on the tutorial. It’s very nice of you to spend your time making this tutorial.

    I want to know, if I want to install fedora10 with the minimum installation(I don’t need GUI) Which packet should I checked and which packet should I unchecked ? I want the smallest fedora that I can get.

    Thanks for your time. Regards,


  7. Thank you very much for this well done tutorial. It helped me especially with the partitioning process. I wonder how you capture those screen shots, is it some kind of utility program?
    Linux has come a long way in recent years with the Live CDs. It is so nice to be able to try them out first. After trying several distros, I found Fedora 10 and Mandriva One 2009 to install on both a desktop and laptop without problems or tweaking.
    Regarding firewalls, many didn’t pass the stealth test at ShieldsUp ( Fedora 10 was the only one I tested that was 100% stealth.
    Thanks again for the great blog and how-tos.

  8. Thank you for the above information
    I will try this in my system,I think it will be useful to me
    If any latest news on linux, please mail me
    thank you

    2. Do 13 as I mentioned in above steps.
    3.You will able to see NTFS or FAT partition which is your windows partition.So Dont change anything into it.
    4.Select Free space and create linux partition by following above steps.
